Rights and Permissions

Children should be given the privilege to mature in a loving, supportive family environment that promotes the development of an individual to his/her full potential. The abuse and neglect of children is a problem that pervades all segments of society. Dentists/forensic odontologists are in a strategic position to recognize mistreated children.

Once this information is known to the dentist, he/she can join physicians in protecting children from injury.
